Catch up on the entire series: information to influence behaviours in the military context.
Evasive information in the Military Context
The development of evasive information and communications technologies bear far-reaching consequences, also for military organisations. In information warfare, non-kinetic, information-based capabilities are employed to target human cognition, seeking changes in attitudes, perceptions and behaviour by manipulating the flow of information. As influencing efforts have grown, Western military organisations are shifting their attention to focus on information-based capabilities. In this rapidly evolving information environment, armed forces are faced with a myriad of questions and dilemmas.
The purpose of this platform
We have brought together international experts and practitioners with both military and non-military backgrounds to explore, discuss, build and share knowledge on information-based behavioural influencing in the military context. This platform provides a space for experts and practitioners to examine and dissect the ethical, legal and military-strategic issues and boundaries that are involved.
